The Shey Monastery or Gompa and the Shey Palace complex are structures located on a hillock in Shey, 15 kilometres to the south of Leh in Ladakh, northern India on the Leh-Manali road. Shey was the old capital of the upper Ladakh region. When the Dogras of Jammu invaded Ladakh in 1842, the Namgyals abandoned the palace and fled to Stok (they made it their permanent residence) on the opposite side of the Indus River. It is conjectured that the fort found in ruins, not dated, above the present palace at Shey, belonged to this period of invasion. Subsequently, when the political dictates necessitated shifting of the capital to Leh, even then the importance of Shey continued since it was a mandatory requirement of the Namgyal kings to father their heir apparent here.

In NatureWings special Leh Ladakh Tour Packages you will witness Nubra Valley, which lies between the Karakoram and Ladakh mountain range and is a sub-division of the Union territory of Ladakh, is one of the most unique and less travelled destinations in India. Famous for the Double Humped also known as the Bactrian Camels, this valley is now starting to gain popularity among the tourists.
To reach Nubra Valley tourists are required to travel via Diskit (capital of Nubra valley), from Leh which takes around 5 hours. Along the way the tourists have to cross the Khardung La pass which at an altitude of 17,600 feet and the military check-post. In order to enter Nubra valley the tourists are required to get a permit as the valley is too close to the country borders and also pay an entry fee of rupees 20 per vehicle. There are two types of permits available, the Protected Area Permit (PAP) and the Inner Line Permit (ILP) for the foreigners to enter the valley respectively. Along the way lies Hundar village (12km from Diskit) which is also famous for white sand dunes. The sand dunes stretch from Hundar village to the Nubra valley and this is the spot where the Double Humped Camel Safari actually takes place. The charge of the double humped camel rides is 200 INR per head for 15 minutes.
Originally named Ldumra meaning ‘Valley of Flowers’, Nubra valley has variety of berries and nuts. Leh berries (Hippophae) and sea buckthorn which is a staple food for the bactrian camels are found in plenty. The tourists enjoy the activities but the valley itself is one of the most soul soothing places on earth.

Make Ladakh plastic free, always bring back used bottles and plastics.
Dress decently. Don’t wear shorts, sleeveless dress while visiting Buddhist Gompa or Monasteries.
While planning for your Ladakh Kargil Tour certain things should be kept in mind like choosing a suitable car. The car that your choose should have ground clearance so that it can climb those steep roads of Ladakh and Kargil easily and also cross those small streams that flow across the roads. The car should also have fuel capacity as there is less number of petrol pumps along the road and you won’t get a chance to refuel. The length of the car should be small and not like sedans as to make those sharp turns and the car should also have enough space as you don’t want to be cramped for a long time along the journey on those tricky mountain roads. Thus, SUVs like the Scorpio and Pajero are best recommended as they cover the entire above requirement.

From handling of Permits, coordinating with driver, informing the concern person for our stays everything was butter smooth. I highly recommend NatureWings & Team to all, looking forward to do my future trips through them only.

For the first time in my life, I booked a package tour from a tour operator, and based on my experience, I must say it will not be my last. From the very first day of communication a thoroughly professional approach, keeping the best interests and the needs of the customer in mind at all times was their point of concern. All the arrangements were good & value for money, and the process of procuring permits and other formalities was seamless and smooth. The hotels and food were good, and even arrangements were made for vegetarian food as well. Overall, an excellent memorable experience. Team NatureWings was very responsive and we always felt safe and well taken care of throughout the trip. We enjoyed our Ladakh Package Tour from Mumbai at our fullest satisfaction.
